Market Performance

October 31, 2023 (Unaudited)

A review of equity markets this year could perhaps best be described as “it was the best of times, it was the worst of times,” to quote Charles Dickens. In October of 2022 equity markets began to rebound after a miserable year, a rally that continued for the first half of 2023. The Federal Reserve (Fed) raised interest rates four times in 2023, but the economy showed surprising resilience to the higher rate regime and fears of a recession waned. Prices remained high for many goods, but the rate of inflation moderated, and consumers continued to spend. The equity market peaked on July 31, at which point the Standard & Poor's (S&P) 500 Index was up 19.5% for the year.

However, concerns over lackluster earnings, as well as the potential for slowing growth and lofty valuations sparked a sharp reversal. From August through October, equities declined for three straight months, at one point entering the technical definition of a correction of a 10% decline of the S&P 500 Index from its most recent high. Nonetheless, as of October 31, 2023, the S&P 500 Index was still up 9.2% for the year, and 17% from its low in October 2022.

A critical feature of equity markets this year was the concentration of returns. Most of the rise of the S&P 500 Index through July of 2023 – as well as the decline in late summer into early fall – was attributable to just seven stocks frequently referred to as the “Magnificent Seven” – Apple, Alphabet, Amazon, Meta, Microsoft, Nvidia and Tesla. Together, they account for around half of the weighting of the Nasdaq 100 and represent the largest combined weight of the top seven companies in the S&P 500 Index seen this century. Although they represent different aspects of the tech industry, including hardware, software, AI, social media and electric vehicles, that is still a major concentration, with significant portfolio construction implications. The severity of the market swing this year resulting from such a concentration of stocks in an index underscores yet again the importance of diversification.

The late summer swoon in stocks also coincided with a selloff in bonds as expectations grew that interest rates would remain high for some time, even with the Fed announcing a pause in rate hikes. Treasury yields rose sharply (when bond prices fall, yields rise), with most notably, the yield on a 10-year Treasury note hitting 5%, a significant milestone, although it has since fallen back somewhat. The rise in interest rates led to higher yields in cash investments, such as money market funds and certificates of deposit, reaching 5% in some cases. As a result, many investors decided to “de-risk” their portfolio and embrace the relative safety of cash investments, which offered decent returns for the first time in many years.

From a sector perspective, 2023 saw sectors associated with stronger economic conditions perform best, a reversal from what investors experienced in 2022. Communication Services and Technology led the pack with returns of 36.6% and 33.7%, respectively, while Consumer Discretionary was up 20%. Sectors most impacted by higher rates were the worst performers, with Utilities down 15.5% and Real Estate down 10.7%. Consumer Staples, a traditional “defensive” sector also lagged, declining 7.9%, while Energy was not able to repeat its 2022 success, when it was the only positive performing sector in the S&P 500 Index, falling 3% through October 31st, 2023.

Although investors were mostly focused on the economy and Federal Reserve rate hikes, geopolitical turmoil continued to weigh on investors’ minds. Concerns about the health of China’s real estate and banking sectors, and its potential impact on global growth, a bloody stalemate in the war in Ukraine, and, of course, the war in Israel, all contributed to geopolitical uncertainty. Still, the market impacts from those events have been relatively muted. Similarly, the US political situation, with the budget battles, potential government shutdowns, and the removal of the Speaker of the House, all dominated headlines, but had relatively little impact on markets.

Looking ahead to 2024, many of the drivers of returns this year – economic growth, the Fed, company earnings and stock valuations – are likely to continue. However, geopolitical concerns may become more top of mind for investors, particularly as we head into the US presidential election season, especially if it seems likely there will be a change in economic policy. The “best of times, worst of times” market environment could well persist in 2024.

Amplify High Income ETF

Fund Performance

October 31, 2023 (Unaudited)

The Amplify High Income ETF (YYY or the “Fund”) seeks investment results that generally correspond (before fees and expenses) to the price and yield of the ISE High IncomeTM Index (the “Index”). The Fund will normally invest at least 80% of its net assets (plus borrowings for investment purposes) in securities of the Index. Because the Index is comprised of securities issued by other investment companies (as opposed to operating companies), the Fund operates in a manner that is commonly referred to as a “fund of funds,” meaning that it invests its assets in shares of funds that are included in the Index.

The Fund had a NAV total return of 3.52%. The Index had a total return of 3.85%. The S&P 500 Index had a total return of 10.14%. The Fund invests in closed-end funds with exposure to a variety of asset classes. Across the asset classes, mixed allocation funds contributed 9.39%, fixed income funds contributed 5.04% followed by equity funds at 2.83%. The performance numbers reflect their total return during the period.

Fund Performance

October 31, 2023 (Unaudited) (Continued)

The Fund is the successor to the investment performance of the YieldShares High Income Fund (the “Predecessor High Income Fund”) as a result of the reorganization of the Predecessor High Income Fund into the Fund on October 7, 2019. Accordingly, the performance information shown in the chart and table above for periods prior to October 7, 2019 is that of the Predecessor High Income Fund’s Shares for the Fund. The Predecessor High Income Fund was managed by the same portfolio managers as the Fund and had substantially the same investment objectives, policies, and strategies as the Fund.

The performance data quoted represents past performance. Past performance does not guarantee future results. The investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate so that an investor’s shares, when sold or redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost and current performance may be lower or higher than the performance quoted. For performance data current to the most recent month-end please call 855-267-3837 or visit AmplifyETFs.com/YYY. Per the prospectus, the Fund's Total Expense Ratio was 2.72%. Prior to June 20, 2013, the Fund sought to provide investment results that, before fees and expenses, corresponded generally to the price and yield performance of the SWM Index. The Fund’s performance assumes the reinvestment of all dividends and all capital gains. Index returns assume reinvestment of dividends and, unlike a Fund’s returns, do not reflect any fees or expenses. If such fees and expenses were included in the index returns, the performance would have been lower. Please note that one cannot invest directly in an unmanaged index.

There are no assurances that the Fund will meet its stated objectives.

The Fund’s holdings and allocations are subject to change and should not be considered recommendations to buy individual securities.
